Due to airport facility constraints at Manchester Airport (MAN), customers must reclaim their checked baggage when transferring to or from an Air Canada flight with any other airline.
This applies even if both flights are on the same ticket.
For example, when travelling from Toronto to Manchester on an Air Canada operated flight, then onward to Brussels on a flight operated by another airline, customers must:
- first claim their checked baggage when arriving at Manchester then…
- check their bags again with the connecting airline operating their flight to Brussels
Regardless of the direction, the same process applies for inbound and outbound travel.
Another example is when travelling from Frankfurt to Manchester on a flight operated by another airline, and with a ticket including a Manchester-Toronto onward connection operated by Air Canada. Customers must:
- first reclaim their checked baggage when arriving in Manchester, then…
- re-check them again with Air Canada
